Richard Lui On His Father's Alzheimer's Diagnosis & The Power Of Selflessness | Morning Joe | MSNBC


  1. Google and YouTube MCT and Alzheimer’s. It totally reversed my husband’s symptoms. 4 years later after noticing his moderate symptoms. His symptoms reversed so much that he is able to work and drive now in 2021. It is like turning the lights back on.

  2. The true test is to just say “blink ” it may be all he is responding to , it is good to still have hope , but a true scientific test would go that way to test the limits of recognition

  3. Well, now you need to worry about whether your dad would be assaulted on the metro or just taking out the garbage…..

  4. As an AAPI myself, Richard Lui has long been overlooked as a stalwart journalist and is one of the few AAPI reporters at NBC, who should have a larger role. On a more personal note, I want to thank him for his touching story with his Dad, I feel his pain because my own mother has been ravaged by Alzheimers for years. Because of Covid, I haven’t been able to visit her face to face for over a year, until she got fully vaccinated last month. However, the memory facility she lives at is still fully-quarantined unfortunately.

  5. That was moving and beautiful. My father had Alzheimer’s and died in 1983. I lived thousands of miles away and didn’t have many opportunities to interact with him which I regret. (Actually at that time they didn’t know for sure it was Alzheimer’s but the doctor assumed it was.)

  6. When I was child, all 3 generations lived together with my great grandmother who has dementia. We all take care of her as before and she died at 96

  7. My older sister was like a second mother to me. One of the last times I went to see her she said “I don’t remember you.” I told her “Well remember you.” She was thrilled, “you do?” She was incredulous. Now I am alone and losing my memory. I hope someone remembers me.

    1. To jack 1234.My hope is the Lord remembers us always.As i,I, soon to be 60 yrs in this life.Pray all of us ALONERR,S.Will be remembered.

  8. I did that for my Grandmother. My Father and then in and my mother. My mother had dementia and I spent hours in classes to help learn how to deal with it. My sister and my Brother had no idea what it takes to do that. We need to support people who take on caring for parents and family.

  9. OMG I don’t know how people do it. I been caring for my husband for the past 10 years and he is now at the end of his life I can no longer care for him.and it hurts immensely.

  10. My Mom sister passed away in a nursing home during the pandemic. I told my Mother not to worry. When the time comes she’ll move in with me. I know it’ll be the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

    1. My mother passed away in a nursing home in February 2016 i would go to see her almost every day it still hurts me when i think about all of the poor elderly people yelling help me every time i would go to see her PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you can keep your parents home with you don’t do something that you will surely regret. HAVE A NICE DAY

  11. Some times they remember. sometimes they don’t. My mom visited her aunt who was in a care facility, the strangest thing is when she came face to face with my mom. She grabbed her hands and held them the hold while she was there. She knew who she was and hadn’t seen her for over 10 years. That was amazing. She knew my mom the whole while when they say she remembers no one. Bless you Richard and your father too.

  12. I’ve seen the new Avenger movie yesterday. And i was confused for a day about what a real life hero really is all about. Now i know. Thank you.

  13. I appreciate your message. I, too, am dealing with a family member suffering from dementia. Unfortunately, no one else has answered my pleas for assistance. I’ve been ignored each and every time. All responsibility falling on the shoulders of one individual is not feasible. It should be a joint effort, but sadly, that is not the case. We have become a “Throw Away” society. It’s tragic.

  14. To all of you that have lost a loved and taking care of loved ones. My heart goes out to you all. My you and your families be blessed for your selflessness. From one Care Giver to another.
